A few Rides In The Country...

Customer broke down @ 1:00am with a flat tire 150 mi away. We sent a tire service that changed the tire & wheel but found a brake issue as well so I still needed to go fetch it in upstate NY...

But if you're going to break down....best to do it at a Dunkin Donuts...

This one had a coolant leak & was bought back to our shop for repairs...

This one broke down at an industrial park at the gates, shut off & wouldn't start. The driver had a problem a few days before & saw a mechanic "jump" his starter solenoid to get it going...so figures "Hey I can do that!". Then he proceeds to jump the solenoid with his 5th wheel puller....Yes the 4' long steel rod with a hook on the end! Needless to say it started to spark & ark so he ripped the bar out, taking wires with it. I got it started and brought it to the start for repairs. 3min later it starts pouring oil all over the ground! Here the bar was touching the turbo return pipe and melted holes through it...

Then when we get him done, he hooks up and proceeds to miss the driveway and crashes the truck in to a drainage ditch....
